Published August 1, 2014 by bibliobeth

I am a lover of “real books.” Oh yes, you remember the things…with actual pages? Not that I don’t love my Kindle or admire its convenience especially on holidays, but there’s just nothing like the feel, smell and satisfaction of enjoying the real thing. Sigh! Anyway, before I get carried away, I’d like to tell you about the plan I have for the month of August, attempting to reduce the amount of books I have in my house – which are starting to take over by the way! So here are the books I will be attempting to get through this month…

Do No Harm: Stories Of Life, Death and Brain Surgery – Henry Marsh

The Shock Of The Fall – Nathan Filer

Delusions Of Gender: How Our Minds, Society, and Neurosexism Create Difference – Cordelia Fine

The Kiterunner – Khaled Hosseini

Battle Royale – Koushun Takami

The Vanishing Witch – Karen Maitland

The Private Blog Of  Joe Cowley – Ben Davis

Season To Taste or How To Eat Your Husband – Natalie Young

Kindred – Octavia E. Butler

Rosalind Franklin: The Dark Lady of DNA – Brenda Maddox

A Monster Calls – Patrick Ness

How To Build A Girl – Caitlin Moran

  • I realized last night that I have nothing to read for NetGalley until September, so I decided I would sit back and just read some books from my shelf that I’ve been meaning to for a while too!! Go us. I’m starting with Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society.
